Here at the gallery we are preparing for our exciting new exhibit, ‘A Spectrum of Perspectives’ from Quesnel’s own Spectrum Art Studios. This show is a unique collection of work by over 15 emerging artists from ages 4 years and up, who are studying under the talented artist & teacher Tanya Shymko. The title represents the spectrum of colours, ages and influences we see through art, this is evident when observing the wonderful range of pieces together in one room.
We will be hosting an opening reception at the Gallery on Thursday, August 18th from 7:00PM-9:00PM with all of the artists in attendance. The opening reception is a chance to hear where the inspiration for the show came from and meet the artists who put so much work into this exhibit. There will be coffee, tea, and treats and a brief introduction from the artists who made this show possible, we hope to see you all there!
The variety of mediums filling up our space right now is bringing so much colour and joy to the white walls, I’m sure it will inspire and delight anyone who walks in for the next few weeks until the show ends on September 29th. If you can’t make it to the opening reception, be sure to check out the show on our regular business days, Tuesday through Saturday 10:00AM-4:00 PM.
Due to scheduled maintenance of the building the Rec Centre will be closed from September 5th-18th meaning the Art Gallery and Gift Shop will be inaccessible and therefore also will be closed. We are planning on starting back up on the 20th of September where you can still catch the showing of ‘A Spectrum of Perspectives’ for its final weeks in our Gallery. Behind the scenes we will be working on some exciting new projects for the future, keep up with our blog posts to be the first informed!
With Summer coming closer to an end we will be relying on the incredible support of our volunteers to keep the Gallery and Gift Shop up and running for its regular hours. We are deeply grateful to our volunteers and supporters in this wonderful community. If you are interested in volunteering, please come visit or give us a call at the Gallery!
